My work is rooted in the power of nature and its healing qualities. Nature’s ability to thrive and grow and reclaim manmade structures, is an endless source for my creativity.
To me this process of growth and reclamation becomes a metaphor for one’s own strength over adversity and our ability to heal.
I explore the idea of nature as a force to heal through surface design. I work mainly with stoneware, making slab work and use a variety of glaze combinations and techniques. The bold glazes and the dark black slabs of clay represent a contrast between nature and man.
Nature has always been a source of inspiration for my work and particularly its resilience to overcome the trauma inflicted by man. I often refer to this healing process as a form of “Natural Kintsugi’; nature healing the cracks.
